Just recently, we got a note from BlackBerry that Facebook v4.1 had just been released for BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry OS 5 to 7.1. All I could think about when reading it was “SO?!”. As someone who writes about BlackBerry on a daily basis, it’s very difficult to care about legacy devices. Sure, there’s still 80 million or so legacy users worldwide, and I’m sure they’re looking for info as well, but I don’t see this website being the source for that. It’s way more fun to talk about where BlackBerry is going and the new products coming to the platform. It’s soul-wrenching to discuss an outdated platform that clearly has an end of life coming up.
Readers – are you still interested in reading about legacy BlackBerrys? Personally, I think onwards and upwards without looking back is the way to go.
